Blackwater CEO Prince Says Iraq Lawsuits Politically Motivated

Blackwater chairman and CEO Erik Prince has come out swinging at growing accusations that his contractors in Iraq are trigger-happy cowboys who fired without provocation on unarmed civilians last month in Baghdad, killing 17 people and wounding 27.

Mr Prince speculated that the attorneys representing four victims in a lawsuit against him and Blackwater only want to score political points and get media attention. He also suggested that the US military, which was on the scene minutes after the September 16 incident in Nisoor Square, did not conduct a thorough investigation.
